FEATURED SAFARI TOURS

With a myriad of possibilities

EXPLORE SAFARI REGIONS

Serengeti National Park

This is the national park that probably first comes to mind when you think of the word ‘safari’, and with good reason as the Serengeti is home to the Great Migration. It is located in north-central Tanzania and is inhabited by over 2 million ungulates, 4000 lions, 1000 leopards and so much more in an area close to 15,000 square kilometres in size.

Recommended Visit Duration: 3-4 days

Ngorongoro Crater National Park

Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is the world’s biggest intact volcanic caldera and home to 115 different animal species. The rim of the crater is about 2,200m high and has its own climate. Being one of the few places where you can see the big 5 animals (lions, elephants, rhinos, leopards, and buffaloes) this is definitely a place to not be missed when planning your safari experience. You can also encounter Maasai communities and learn about their traditional way of life.

Recommended Visit Duration: 1-2 days

Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara is a scenic park that encompasses a large soda lake, dense forests, and open grassy areas. It’s renowned for its tree-climbing lions, flamingoes, large elephant population, hippos, and vibrant birdlife.

Recommended Visit Duration: Half to Full Day

Tarangire National Park

Named after the permanent Tarangire River being it’s most dominant feature, this national park attracts large numbers of elephants (one of the largest elephant populations in Africa), wildebeests, gazelles and various predators like lions that come to drink and graze around the river banks, during the rain months of November to May.

Recommended Visit Duration: 1-2 days

Arusha National Park

Home to Tanzania’s second highest mountain, Mount Meru and the world’s largest population of giraffes. Being the most accessible of all parks – just 25 km east of Arusha, it can be done as a day trip.

Recommended Visit Duration: Half to Full Day

Mkomazi National Park

Previously a game reserve and fairly new in its designation as a National Park, Mkomazi has a number of uniqueness. It has fewer crowds as it is remote and originally difficult to reach but this means animals roam around even freely. You’ll also get the chance to visit the rhino sanctuary!

Recommended Visit Duration: 1 Day

Eye-opening encounters

SAFARI HIGHLIGHTS

Game Drives

Immerse yourself in the animal’s natural habitat and see them roam freely. With wonders like Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti Plains, this is your chance to spot the Big 5.

Dine under the African stars where delicious meals are prepared for you to enjoy outdoors in scenic locations in the National Park.

Calving Season

Glad we chose ZAFS ZAFS Tours exceeded all expectations during our Mt. Kilimanjaro expedition, thanks to their outstanding team of guides—Amani, Faruq, Mussa, and Majumba. The service was truly exceptional from start to finish. The guides demonstrated unparalleled care throughout the journey. Their attention to our well-being, health, and safety was remarkable. They went above and beyond, ensuring we were acclimatizing properly, providing timely reminders for hydration, and keeping a close eye on our overall comfort. A special mention goes to Amani, Faruq, Mussa, and Majumba for their genuine concern and support during challenging moments. The food provided on the mountain was both nourishing and delicious, surpassing typical trekking expectations. The guides ensured dietary preferences and restrictions were considered, making the dining experience on Kilimanjaro an unexpected highlight. It felt like a home-cooked meal at high altitudes. One notable instance of their exceptional service was when, on summit night, we realized we had forgotten our windbreakers. The guides swiftly arranged replacements on the spot, displaying not only their preparedness but also their dedication to ensuring our comfort and safety during the most crucial part of the trek. The camaraderie and fun shared with the guides made the journey memorable. They brought a lively spirit to the expedition, creating an atmosphere that turned strangers into a close-knit group. Their professionalism was evident in every aspect of the trek, fostering an environment that balanced adventure with safety. Huzeifa, the owner of ZAFS Tours, played a pivotal role in orchestrating this seamless experience. His attention to detail, commitment to customer satisfaction, and hands-on approach to managing the operation were evident throughout. Accommodations both before and after the trek were comfortable and well-organized, adding a touch of luxury to bookend the rugged adventure. By the end of the expedition, the group, including the guides and Huzeifa, felt like one big family. The bonds formed during the trek were a testament to the warmth and hospitality of ZAFS Tours. The combination of professionalism, personalized care, and a genuine passion for their work made this Mt. Kilimanjaro experience truly exceptional. ZAFS Tours has set the bar high for adventure tourism, and I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone seeking an unforgettable trekking experience.

MAGNIFICENT KILLIMANJARO with ZAFS We had an incredible 7 day Lemosho trip for a group of 6 of us. Zafs took care of everything & supported us in every way before, after & in the trip. There were moments when things were hard-they had prepared us for these times. They were aware of our limitations and our needs & were next to us when we needed them. I couldn’t have got to the top without our guides John, Gabriel & Janeth. And the porters & chef-what can I say-they carry all that gear on their backs & always smiling. They are real heros. The food they carry & prepare was excellent. The toilet tent was never a ‘no go’ zone! They chatted with us & taught me so much about Tanzania that I didn’t know previously. I wish I could have stayed longer to explore more of this beautiful country. I will definitely come back to see more. I would highly recommend Zafs. 🙏🏽 Asante

FAQs

Frequently asked questions

Expect familiar food with occasional local touches. Most lodges will offer buffet-style dining whilst others may have set menus. If you have any dietary requirements we can accommodate these for you but please let us know in advance. If you are out driving during the day, your driver will take a packed lunch for you.

  • As hunting is strictly prohibited in all the National Parks, this means Tanzania has one of the highest densities of wildlife. Higher park fees keep the number of visitors relatively low and so there is a more exclusive experience. All safaris in Tanzania are conducted with 4×4 off-road vehicles unlike other countries that use small family cars and this makes the experience all the more memorable. 

The different National Parks – Tarangire, Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro – may look close on a map, but there is a considerable amount of driving between each location. Approximate driving times are listed below. While this gives you the opportunity to see more of the Tanzania countryside – look out for Maasai villages beside the road, children tending their herds of goats and cattle, and roadside markets – you will not see any game during these transit times.

    • Moshi to Lake Manyara – 4 hours

    • Arusha to Tarangire – 2.5 hours

    • Tarangire to Ngorongoro – 3 hours

    • Ngorongoro to Serengeti – 4 hours

    • Lake Manyara to Serengeti – 5 hours

We would recommend being up and early for a game drive – around 6am as this time is cooler in the day, the animals are most active, you get ahead of the other tourists and since the park fees are paid by day (end of day being 6pm) then leaving early means you can get the most out of the day. However, as we provide you with a completely customisable itinerary, you are free to choose your schedule depending on your comfort.

Our safari vehicle can accommodate up to 7 people. Every vehicle will have a rooftop and sliding windows for better viewing experience
